For Fun Challenge - Halloween/NO ORANGE

Okay, Okay, I out and out unintentionally fibbed to you.... but I promise....this is my LAST Halloween card of the year. I'm so ready to get into making Christmas cards.

The challenge this week at For Fun is to make a Halloween card/project without using any orange unless it's a pumpkin.  I found this adorable image "Trick or Treat" at Karen's Doodles a few weeks ago and knew I could get by without using orange on it.  In this picture the brads look a little orange but believe me they are red.  Was a fun image to work with and I think it turned out pretty cute. Ya think?

Be sure you take the time to see some of the awesome creations by the DT at For Fun this week.

Items used to create the card:
  • Bazzill card stock
  • Image - Trick or Treat - Karen's Doodles
  • Copics and Distress Inks for coloring
  • UltraFine Sage Flower Soft for grass
  • Brads & ribbon from stash
  • Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • MS branch punch
  • Stickles
That's all from me today. Hope you are having a fantastic week and enjoying life to the fullest. If you have the time to leave me a comment I'll be by to visit and see what's new on your blog. 

Looking forward to seeing your fantastic creation for this week's challenge at For Fun!
